I’ve told you how much I love Winter light, right? Well, this was another one of those days when the sun was on perfect behaviour – even though I was somewhat worried about the later start to this shoot. I met up with the Boshoff Family at Lonehill Park to snap some much needed family pics. What a stunning relaxed family – mom Justine is absolutely gorgeous, Dad Willem so hands on, toothless baby Shaylee is just the sweetest thing, with huge blue eyes, and older sister Tiffany (who learnt how to love nature a bit more ;)) with the most beautiful hair! I’m so glad I could capture some precious family moments with you guys, thank you for a lovely morning.
This shoot took place on the coldest day of the year, and I’ll be honest, when I arrived at Lonehill Park for it, I was worried as the air was so icy and very unpleasant. Luckily for me, little Charlotte was embracing her puffy jacket, sweet pink beanie and the freezing cold air. In fact, with her crystal blue eyes and pink nose I kept commenting that she looked like a Swedish model on a cookie tin! What an angelic gorgeous little girl – and no wonder – because mom Bryony and Dad Patrick are the most awesome and down-to-earth people. It was a (quick) but super chilled (literally!) shoot, and despite the Game Of Thrones Wintery conditions, the sun was just perfect. Thank you Watson family! Continue reading
I am absolutely besotted with 1 week old Harper McKenzie and just had the best time shooting her in all her newborn perfection. I ‘met’ her when I did mom Shelley’s maternity shoot last month, and up until the day she was born Shelley and Johnny had no idea what they were having. She’s perfect in every way, was an absolute angel for the entire session and is loved by everyone – especially proud big sister Taeyla who couldn’t stop giving her kisses. Such a wonderful, fun shoot! Thank you guys!
I simply adore a casual at-home lifestyle session, and this shoot was just that. Olivia was just 10 days old when I met her, and the newest addition to the Jackson clan. She is utterly gorgeous – just like mom – with olive skin and a mop of thick black hair. Older brother Jayden is probably the sweetest 1.5 year old I have ever met, with the most charming smile I’ve ever seen. Meeting Candace and Ricky (mom and dad) was such a treat – they are both so nice and relaxed and made me feel right at home. I loved the classic decor of their home and the windows that all had THE BEST LIGHT (any photographers dream!). Continue reading
Gina and Renzo recently celebrated their combined birthday party (3 and 1) on Mothers Day. Despite the icy air and constant rain the kids had an absolute blast playing on the jungle gyms, riding the pony and catching rain drops on their tongues. The adults (because as we know, wisdom comes with age ;)) celebrated indoors with cozy heaters and delicious food. The 3 Moreira siblings are just the sweetest – as are their friends! Thanks for inviting me to capture this special day Sally-Ann and Marco! Continue reading
Meet gorgeous 2.5 week old baby Bailey Grey Pillay. She is sister to the sweetest prettiest Dakota-Blue and daughter to Nicky and Darryl. Guys, there’s just something abut a little baby girl that gets me all melty, and I was so excited to try my handmade flower crowns on all the ladies! Thanks for inviting me into your home guys, and for letting me cuddle baby Bailey longer than I should have 😉 Continue reading
It was quite weird meeting Elana ‘officially’ as I feel like we are totes besties – all thanks to social media! We have been following each other on Twitter and Instagram for years now and I marvel at her post baby body, run pace and adorable son Sam. Elana booked me for an Express shoot with her mom Elma and sister Estèrre as well as their gorgeous kiddies Sam, Stella and MJ. Delta Park never fails to disappoint and I’m really glad we could shoot while the last few Cosmos were in bloom. I think our loud screams for the kids to ‘say cheese’ scared half the park goers away 🙂 Thank you for a fun, wet and coffee-fuelled morning. Continue reading
A few weeks ago I found myself in a bit of a predicament – I take everyone else’s photos but no one ever took of me, and I was in desperate need of some head shots for my website and blog. I’ve done a few family shoots with the Lovely Robyn from Robyn Davie photography and after chatting we decided to do a trade exchange whereby we took each others head shots one afternoon. We were joined by another Robyn from Robyn Rose photography and spent a stunning afternoon at her house sipping Prosecco, munching on snacks and taking each others photos (as well as some pics of her gorgeous twins who were helping us assist ;)). It’s so refreshing to be able to work with other photogs instead of being threatened by them, and I’m really grateful to have these two lovely ladies to bounce ideas and feedback off. Below are a few of the head shots I took on the day – please get in touch if you need professional or personal head shots done for your business! Continue reading
